I can Act! In this picture I was playing Professor Plum in my school's production of CLUE.

*In the picture the dead body is Mr.Body. The character in the back right is Ms. White. And the last one is Mr.Wadsworth, the butler of the mansion. (Also you can see the audience in the foreground, sorta.)

In this play we adapted it from the movie, but wrote three alternate endings to spice it up for all four days of the production!

Oh c'mon, I'm sure we have more than 2 talented people among us! :)

Alright, well, I had some talents prepared, but I don't think they match up to my talent for acting. I don't wanna copy Jake's thing in this event, but I can't help it if there's another who finds interest in the arts.

Me, Jamie and Brand performed "The Complete Works of William Shakespeare [abridged]" in the Fall of 2011, last year. All three of us portrayed ourselves plus various characters and figures from Shakespeare's work. As for me, during all 4 performances, I opened and closed Act 1, opened Act 2, and closed the show with my fellow cast mates. So I was around at each nook and cranny of the show, while doing numerous things. Mainly to change costumes for characters, such as...

Myself (The Othello rap, The Comedies, Part of "Hamlet", Various parts of the show)
Romeo (Romeo & Juliet)
The Rapist (Titus Andronicus) NOTE: all I did in this role was get my head cut off; not for real)
A Witch (The Scottish Play)
King Julius Caesar (King Julius Caesar)
TV Announcer/Richard II/King Lear/Richard III/Cheerleader (The Histories, made into a Football Game)
Horatio/Polonious/Laertes (Hamlet)

At the end of Act 1, I also did some impressions that got the crowd laughing. To fill in time, because that's how the show goes. My impressions include George W. Bush, Carlos Mencia and Steve Irwin. I could have done a video of those, but too late now. :P

The best part about Act 2 was that we got more interaction with the crowd during our abridged portion of Hamlet. We even did the the show fast and FASTER, and then I declared we do this show BACKWARDS. And that was very hard to do in rehearsals, but we got the hang of it. Also, I had a beard back then.

Picture of me and my cast: (Left to Right) Me (Laertes), Jamie (Herself; at the time) and Brand (Hamlet)

I also thought of adding this tidbit. At the end of the year, which was last month, my director awarded me "The Heart of Theatre" Award, for showing a high interest in theatre, and setting an example for others. You could say this confirms my dedication and "talent" for theatre performing.


However, if I change my mind, I can show my talent where I taught my cat how to sit up (although it's very cheesy). Or I can show video of my unimpressive impressions. Or even the video where I spin around (while dizzy) while standing on one leg. But I'll go with acting.

Well, I'm fairly musical. I also do acting and stuff, but music is probably my main thing. My primary instrument is trombone though.

[spoiler:3q0dofav]Here (http://www.youtube.com/watch?nomobile=1&v=sgxttT3PRDU)is a video from last years Marching Band, andhere (http://www.youtube.com/watch?nomobile=1&v=bQSf8UqxB0A) is a video from last years symphonic band. For the Marching video, I&#39;m the 2nd Trombone from the left when we come up front , 4th from the right in the back row of Symphonic. (Not that it&#39;s easy to see in the first place. XD)

I&#39;m not sure if these count since it&#39;s not me specifically, but I guess it&#39;s cool to show you guys. I wish I had a video of when I had an improv solo in Jazz Band.

Also, I recently got accepted into the Cleveland Youth Symphony, so that&#39;s pretty cool. :P[/spoiler:3q0dofav]

You guys are pretty dang talented!

REMINDER: This is our last event of Summer Camp (besides the extended Scavenger Hunt). Make sure you get your submissions in for a chance to win the Trine Bundle on steam, and get posted on the blog!

EDIT: I'm extending this to 10pm CST tonight, to try and get some more participants. :)

Why don't mods and marketers also share their talents? Even if you can't win (I"m not sure if you can or not,) but it will show more hype and show off more of everyone's talents _awesome_

Jakepeter asked to see Marketing talents, so here you are!

Alrighty then, here's a remix of Pokemon GSC's Ice Path I made for OILD last year, using FL Studio 10: Tedious Tundra - Ice Path (http://www.thespeedgamers.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/12/pkGamerB-Tedious-Tundra-Ice-Path.mp3)

I can play the piano too, but I don't have time to record a video.

What did I just watch!?

07-17-2012, 11:24 PM
Hahahaha. The joint in my shoulder doesn't catch where it's supposed to, so I can just keep on twisting my arm.

There is one scene from Mars Attacks where the President (played by Jack Nicholson) talks to the Aliens. This is my redramatisation of that very speech (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AHHi0T7bvBg&feature=youtu.be)

I guess my talent here is filming myself/editing and performing speeches in an overdramatic matter.

07-18-2012, 07:37 AM
Well, this is late, but here's me in my high school marching band a few years ago when we performed Phantom of the Opera and then a commercial that I made for a local business.


07-18-2012, 09:22 AM
Since I extended this, it ended fairly late for most of us. We will be deciding the winner today. :)

07-18-2012, 05:43 PM
